    Regulating government affairs: Integrating lobbying research and policy concerns2024In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 18, no 1, p. 73-80Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lobbying has never been as sophisticated, complex, and well-funded as it is today. Significantly, interest group strategies are more advanced than the regulatory practices meant to contain them. This raises concerns about states' ability to resist unwanted influence from interest groups. How can government regulations be brought up to speed to address 21st-century lobbying practices? We argue that there are three critical dimensions to focus on: (i) regulatory consolidation; (ii) system interoperability; and (iii) open-source implementation. These aspects address the need for better coordination within jurisdictions, cooperation across systems, and effective use of public resources. Developing future regulations along these lines can help policy to leap-ahead interest groups; while limiting unwanted adverse effects on states' administrative efficiency and political legitimacy. In doing so, we provide a constructive roadmap forward in the field, linking common discussions between researchers, policymakers, and policy stakeholders.

    Foreign corporate accountability: The contested institutionalization of mandatory due diligence in France and Germany2023In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 891-908Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the recent past, European states have adopted mandatory due diligence (MDD) laws for holding companies accountable for the environmental and human rights impacts of their supply chains. The institutionalization of the international due diligence norm into domestic legislation has, however, been highly contested. Our contribution analyzes the discursive struggles about the meaning of due diligence that have accompanied the institutionalization of MDD in Germany and France. Based on document analysis and legal analysis of laws and law proposals, we identify a state-centric, a market-based, and a polycentric-governance discourse. These discourses are based on fundamentally different understandings of how the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights should be translated into hard law. By outlining these discourses and comparing the related policy preferences, we contribute with a better understanding of different ways in which MDD is institutionalized, with important consequences for the possibilities to enhance corporate accountability in global supply chains.

    The politics of supply chain regulations: Towards foreign corporate accountability in the area of human rights and the environment?2023In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 17, no 4, p. 853-869Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years, binding regulations in the “home states” of corporations have emerged mainly in the Global North with the aim of holding corporations accountable for human rights and environmental impacts throughout their supply chains. However, we still need a better understanding about to what extent such regulations contribute to enhance “foreign corporate accountability (FCA).” This article introduces a special issue that theorizes and empirically investigates foreign accountability dynamics. We do so by advancing an analytical framework that conceptualizes FCA and identify important contextual conditions that help to explain accountability dynamics. Applying this framework, we show that the drafting, implementation, and enforcement of such regulations are highly political processes, wherein competing ideas embedded within unequal actor constellations and institutional environments shape the possibilities to achieve more transformative change. By theorizing and empirically investigating FCA dynamics, we contribute to advance debates about the sustainability governance of global supply chains.

    Regulating business or policing crime?: Tracing the policy convergence between taxation and crime control at the local level2015In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 9, no 4, p. 352-366Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Policing is commonly associated with street-level crime, whereas regulation is instead associated with thecomplexities of business and market governance. However, this distinction has been questioned by recentresearch and it seems that the worlds of regulation and policing are tending to merge. Still, little is knownabout how this convergence is unfolding. By following the intersection of two international policy-levelprocesses – the financialization of organized crime and the upgraded monitoring of tax evasion – down tothe level of organizational practice in the Swedish restaurant trade, this article contributes to an understandingof the institutional dynamic behind the recent convergence. At the same time, it discusses theconceptual relationship between policing and regulation, and the counter-arguments that may be needed toovercome the distinction between the two. I specifically address the neglected issue of the differential socialvaluation of “crime” and “business,” and find that it is relativized by a common focus on unreportedtransactions.

    The governance of policy integration and policy coordination through joined‐up government: How subnational levels counteract siloism and fragmentation within Swedish migration policy2023In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Modern welfare states struggle with fragmented policies and siloed governments, as well as with the need to deal with wicked problems. We argue that addressing such problems from the perspective of central government can be facilitated by notions of joined-up government that, combined with vertical aspects of modern governance, provide a basis for analysis. To embark upon such challenges, we examine policy integration and policy coordination within the complex area of Swedish migration policies in light of the European migrant crisis. Through a content analysis of an extensive qualitative material (interviews and documents), we show that policy integration is weakly associated with joint objectives and decision-making. As a contribution to prior knowledge in the field, we emphasize the unintuitive finding that counteracting siloism and fragmentation in Swedish migration policy is not achieved through coherent governance ranging across tiers, functions, and sectors but mainly at subnational levels through policy coordination relying on a bottom-up approach.

    Partisan politics, welfare states, and environmental policy outputs in the OECD countries, 1975-20052018In: Regulation and Governance, ISSN 1748-5983, E-ISSN 1748-5991, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 220-237Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Building on the burgeoning literature on the association between the welfare state and the environmental state, this study empirically examines how the politics of the former has affected the development of the latter. We suggest that the size of the welfare state shapes the calculus of environmental policy costs by partisan governments. A generous welfare state lowers the costs perceived by the left-wing government, as large redistributive spending allows the government to mitigate the adverse impact of the new environmental policy on its core supporters, industrial workers. A generous welfare state also implies diminished marginal political returns from additional welfare commitment by the left-wing government, which lowers the opportunity costs of environmental policy expansion. To the contrary, because of lower overall regulatory and taxation pressure, a small welfare state reduces the costs of environmental policy expansion as perceived by a right-wing government. Our theoretical narrative is supported in a dynamic panel data analysis of environmental policy outputs in 25 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development member states during the period 1975-2005.
